Hello everybody

Figured I'd introduce myself here. I used to own an all original matching numbers 67 RS back in my 20's. I paid $600 for it in 1989 and was able to start it up and drive it home. The guy told me afterwards that he felt like he ripped me off at that price. Obviously he knew nothing about the value of the car. I fell on some hard times and ended up selling my car thinking I'd just find another one later on. How wrong I was to think it would be easy or cheap to replace it.

Now in my 40's, my wife recently purchased me a fully restored matching numbers 68 RS. She just couldn't find a 67 RS for sale in a decent price range. Either way I'm happy just the same

Welcome to the forum. Great looking ride! My '67 is similar in color, but currently black. Might change it back when the next painting opportunity comes around.
